Anyone can benefit from music therapy. Like a gym is a place to refresh or exercise, a music therapy session can be an oasis to take care of your emotion, mind, spirit and soul by consciously reaching out for the power of music.
Music therapy session can be a psycho therapy, a process of self-exploration, physical rehabilitation purpose, treatment for handicapped children, etc. The style and technique will vary. It can look like a piano lesson, while music works as a tool to get into a meditative state of consciousness.
